TFF reviews the Guide Fly Fishing Vision Stillmaniac Fly Rod 10ft 7-wt

New for 2020 are two rods in the Stillmaniac range which have been designed for the UK stillwater angler, a 9ft 9in 6-wt and a 10ft 7-wt. The 10ft 7-wt has been designed for the reservoir angler whether you fish from the bank or boat. It is a fast action rod, which loads quickly and can handle everything from a floater down to a Booby Basher. This four-piece rod, weighing 114g, comes in a blue cordura sectioned rod tube. The handle is described as ‘ a small full wells’, which is not as wide in diameter as many rods out on the market. It has a slate blue blank with orange lining up marks, whipped orange markers to measure your fish caught or help with leader construction/dropper spacing’s and an orange EVA fighting butt.

The rod certainly does cast a line well and has plenty of flex to have the confidence to fish fine and light without fear of losing your fish. I like this rod and I’m sure it will be a favourite bit of kit on the reservoir scene.

You can win one of these rods in our competition in this issue!
